Phase 3 of our National Assembly Preparations
Common Mission Evaluation/ Review 2014

   

 

As an  Ignatian Lay Apostolate, CLC is invited to review our Common Mission along with all Canadian Jesuit Apostolates,  at the invitation of Fr. Peter Bission s.j., Jesuit Provincial of English Canada.

How will the Holy Spirit lead CLC Canada in discerning mission and collaborating with others to impact the next 20-50 years? To begin we assess where we have been and where we are now.

 

You will find 3 documents to assist the National Common Mission Evaluation : 

                                                            

1.) Common  Mission Overview                                                                                                                              

2) 1999 Common Mission Evaluation - NA Preparatory Material -  An April 30th response is requested through your Regional Rep, using the format and guidelines sent to your Guides.  Responses received by April 30th will be collated and returned to you before the National Assembly. 

 

3)  Common Mission Review "Where are we Now?" was prepared by General Council with initial national input assessing the current mission and its evolving status across Canada. 

 


CANADA'S COMMON MISSION

The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  
 
As Christian Life Community of Canada we will act as communities, not as individual identities. We will develop leadership in CLC Canada that will move communities to action with special attention to youth/young adults. Through the apostolate of the Spiritual Exercises: Communication, Education, Social Justice in Action, we will strive to better love and serve the Blessed Trinity in our world community as the Canadian CLC.

 A warm welcome awaits you at the Villa Madonna Retreat House!
 

Since 1931, over half a million people have discovered our oasis just 10 minutes east of the Saint John, New Brunswick airport.  They have come to the Villa alone or in groups to be nourished and renewed in body, mind, and spirit.  Secluded from the world that goes on outside its gates, our grounds have a timeless beauty and provide a serene setting that people return to again and again.  

 

The Villa Madonna Retreat House is nestled in 102 acres of rustic woodland on the shores of the beautiful Kennebecasis River.  We are open year-round with every season offering its' own natural beauty.  

Visitors enjoy the peace and quiet that surrounds them on the paths through the woodlands and along the river any time of year. Inside the building, visitors find casual, comfortable facilities that provide a relaxing environment in which to rest, reflect, and be renewed.

 

The Villa Madonna Retreat House is a non-smoking & scent free facility!
